According to studies of the Research Centre for Cultivar Testing, Lenka was the best yielding variety among varieties applied and accepted for the official examinations and for the post-registration variety testing system in 2021. In addition to its high yield potential, Lenka is characterized by exceptionally beautiful tubers and a great taste of the culinary type AB/B.
